    It couldn't have gotten any more heart wrenching for the Sabres than the 1999 Stanley Cup Finals. It was triple overtime in the sixth game of the final series against the Dallas Stars and the score was 1-1. Brett Hull, Stars, makes a ditch effort to score and the shot is saved by Dominik Hasek by rebound. Hull takes advantage of this right away and kicks the puck with his skate to his hockey stick. However, his skate slides into the goalie crease before the puck itself is in the crease. He shoots again and gets the goal to win the cup. Immediately, there was uproar and the Stars' celebrations were lost among the Buffalo fans complaining for a reassessment of the call to allow the goal.

    The regulation back then regarding the goalie's crease was that an opposing team member way not stand inside the crease unless the puck is in there as well, first. If the regulation is broken, any subsequent goal obtained because of the broken regulation, would be invalid. This regulation was created to give some leeway and protection for the goalie. Hull was noticeably guilty of this when video reviewed by officials and pictures were looked at. However, how the NHL spokesperson rationalized not calling off the goal was that if the puck rebounded off of the goalie, post, or opposing player, the puck is still in the opposing player's possession, and thus the regulation is technically not relevant. This explanation was viewed by many as a way for the NHL to cover up its miscall, which I, personally, believe as well. However, the Stars still won and the Sabres have yet to win the cup. There is still no consensus on this particular case, which has been coined as "NO GOAl!", but the regulation has since been scrapped because of its flexibility and vagueness.

    Reflection of WIki
    A wiki is a tool and interface in which users can develop pages that organize and present information in an appealing manner. With Web 2.0 capabilities, wikis easily connect users together to make projects more of a group effort, rather than static, individual creations. This particular endeavor is a collection of wikis with a common theme, The NHL Northeast Division teams. My team is the Buffalo Sabres (as you most likely have noted by reaching the bottom of this page).

    Looking Forward...
    In 1955-96, Ted Nolan became the new coach, and took no time in complimenting the Sabres as the "hardest-working team in hockey". The Sabres had, on average, only 13 000 fans in the Memorial Auditorium that season, however the fans were speculated as being the loyal fans of any NHL hockey team that season as well. In sticking with the movie references, Brad Ray, Rob Ray, and Matthew Barnaby were nicknamed "The Hanson Brothers" from the hockey movie Slapshot. Also Randy Burridge, a veteran player, wet through the training-camp and eventually made it on the roster. He scored 25 goals that season and obtained the Tim Horton Award and was voted MVP. This lead on a whole slew of achievements in the 1996-97 season. The Sabres won their division title, Nolan won the Jack Adams Award, Dominik Hasek won the Hart and Vezina trophies, Michael Peca won the Frank J. Selke trophy as best defensive forward, and John Muckler achieved the Executive of the Year honour.

    make the playoffs.playoffs, but still retained their morale.
    In 1971-72, two more drafted players, Rick Martin and Rene Robert, joined Perreault to create the unorthodox group nicknamed the "French Connection". These three front lines power-housed through to the playoffs for the first time in the 1972-73 season. This was much to the dismay of the Montreal Canadiens, who did not have the impeding right for the first time over Quebecois junior players, thus benefitting the Sabres. However, the Canadiens got their payback in the quarterfinals, beating the Sabres and going on to win the Stanley cup that season.
